Yammer is going away

2019-01-16

Pros

MS bought LinkedIn - it's clear yammer will be going away for those who used it. I have this in my organization and it's the lead adopted MS product of all time

Cons

No one needs to make plain text social announcements on Sharepoint, they do this via email with all kinds of graphics and fonts.

Not sure what Microsoft is trying to achieve with Yammer..

2018-11-13

Pros

Yammer integrates with our Office 365 subscription so all licensed users have access to it without additional costs.

Cons

It feels like a mash between social media and Sharepoint. It's clunky and hard to learn, and administering it/training team members is a nightmare.

It is another social network but for your company

2019-03-26

At the moment it was ok but we did not find it to helpful as a company.

Pros

It has similar features as the popular social network that you use all the time and it helps for the adoption in your workspace.

Cons

Our company did not get it, we could it use as we intended that is was more as a sharepoint kind of sharing place so at the end we switch tool and we are no longer using yammer.

Unclear application

2018-01-16

Pros

Very familiar interface, just like any social media platform. It is fun, and allows for things like liking and commenting on posts.

Cons

If you have Office 365, you will probably be making company-wide announcements in an intranet on SharePoint. For conversations within a team, you will use Conversations within a team, Skype, or the Teams App.

Yammer allows us a very dynamic and colaborative communication

2018-08-06

I like it a lot, we've managed to get the people really involved in sharing what they're doing, problems they face, solutions they implement, their personal and team accomplishments.

Pros

First of all, its included with no additional cost on our Microsoft Ofice 365 subscriptions, so no additional expenses. It's very intuitive, nobody needs to be taught how to use it. It has a very simple feature set allowing us to improve our internal collaboration. Thre's now no excuse for not knowing what's happening in the Company. We can easily do simple polls and congratulate our colleagues for any personal o professional accomplishment or event.

Cons

Or we share links to sharepoint paths.

So it came free with Office 365, but why haven't you tried it out?

2018-02-06

Pros

The collaborative tools are nice, and it works great as either a replacement for, or enhancement of SharePoint. You can create collaboration groups, make instant company wide announcements, surveys, or simply ping someone while they are on a call if you need an answer quickly.

Cons

Nothing. Its easy, sign on, and I've yet to find any end user that had trouble navigating it. Its simple, intuitive, and free!

Fabulous product for connecting people across the organization

2019-03-26

Overall I am quite satisfied with Yammer, I get upto date notifications on what is going on in the company and I can reach people in different timezones quite conviniently through mobile apps.

Pros

Works well with Microsoft sharepoint and in general Microsoft platforms (Office 365). 2.

Cons

There nothing such issue, in terms of usability across organization i have observed the below points 1. Sometimes many notifications can be annoying 2. In case of large conversation we might get off topic or lose track of topic. i wont consider this as a disadvantage of software to be honest, if we have proper workflow it will be very useful.

SPO is improving, but user experience/admin experience could be better

2018-06-26

It's included in our agreement with MS (for enterprise software- Outlook, Yammer, SPO, BI, etc) so cost is right.

Pros

Integration with Microsoft products is great, including active directory, SSO make things easier for users. Extensive ability to permission well.

Cons

Administration is not totally intuitive. I've experienced difficulties with new users as site editors who have aptitude but have significant difficulty figuring out even little tasks such as adding content to a page. Also, while a pro is the wide integration with other MS products, there's almost too much, and the tools change frequently enough that it's difficult to keep up.

Benefits are a great, robust solution for file storage and sharing

Pros

It also has a lot of interation with other Microsoft products such as Yammer, OneDrive, and Office products

Cons

Sharepoint can be a beast to setup. Management and viability could be better. Sometimes seems sluggish to work with.

Solid Platform, Very handy to have integration with Office 365

2017-12-11

Pros

You can link Excel files, use web parts to have OneDrive locations, embed things like Yammer, Power BI, etc.

Cons

I find its hard to use, user security setup can be very complicated at times. Browsing through site settings is very daunting, I don't know why they don't give it a relook. Many organizations are using Sharepoint sites these days and it really does need a refresh. That said, there is a lot you can do with the product and probably even more if they increased the ease of use.

Microsoft SharePoint CMS for Managing content and documents of organization

2017-06-07

If you are small organization, always prefer SharePoint Online services and SharePoint on-premise is recommended for big organization usually.

Pros

From performance and security point of view, SharePoint is the best product for any organization. 4.Can be easily integrated with other Microsoft product such as Outlook, Azure, Yammer, Office, and PowerBI etc. 5.

Cons

1. Maintaining SharePoint on-premises for smaller organisation becomes very difficult and costly because it requires more technical support. 2.SharePoint may have added customization options for those who wants to implement intranet system, Microsoft actually discourages this from happening. The ease of customization with custom designs, especially from a home page perspective, can help businesses better tailor their intranet experience to the individual workers. 3. To work SharePoint search efficiently, Lots of internal customization is needed. 4. Since for SharePoint online, Microsoft is maintaining server, which ends in providing less scope for customizing. 5.Migration from old SharePoint version to new is little complex and requires lots of efforts
